Copy/Paste shortcuts and menu options no longer work
I just downloaded the November 2017 update. I opened a new document. When I try to use copy/paste shortcuts on any object, nothing happens. When I right click and copy/paste using the menu, nothing happens. The only way I can copy an object is by right clicking the object in the layers palette and duplicating it. The keyboard shortcut for group works fine (CTRL+G), as well as select all (CTRL+A).
I opened a project that I started before downloading the update. The copy and paste functions work just fine. They also work if I am in an Illustrator project. I think this may be a bug with the update...
Windows 10 OS Build 16299.64.

I've seen this sort of issue as well. Where Copy/Paste from other sources (not XD) just seems to quit working. Restarting the app fixes it. Using OS X 10.13.2 and XD 126.96.36.199.

That fixed the primary problem- all of the shortcuts appear to work when I first open XD. However, after I have used it for a bit, copy and paste stops working again. If I close and reopen the program, everything works okay again for a couple of hours, but then I have to repeat the process. I suspect it is the clipboard filling up, but I haven't seen an option to clear it.
